8 Work Pants That Will Make You Look Lepak But Fashionable
Cigarette pants may give you the structured look for meetings, but if you’re looking for something more comfy for everyday use, why not try chinos or slouchy pants? We found eight that will make you look like you’re lepak-ing – in a good way.
Pants, $179, Topshop
We love a cropped pair of chinos because that shortened hemline is going to help you trick your leg proportions and appear taller. To get that added height boost, slip on some cork wedges and you’re ready for Sunday tea with the girls.
Trousers, $49.90, Zara
If the wide-leg silhouette scares you, then go sleek with a pair of super-slim pants. It’s no secret that they help “stretch” your leg out to make you look like you’ve got the legs of a supermodel, so why not use it to get the look of longer legs!
Pants, $45.90, Zara
If a tummy is something that you’re trying to hide, then these trousers are your style salvation. With the inclusion of inverted box pleats to hide away your curves, the wide waistband also cinches in the waist and makes you look thinner so you don’t have to skip that extra croissant.
Pants, $34.95, H&M
Instead of a reed-thin pair of chinos, opt for a slim-fit pair that is still forgiving enough for curvier ladies. The minimalist look that they offer also mean you get to have fun with other pieces, so try pairing it with a colourful top or some fancy sneakers!
Cropped trousers, $89.90, Zara
When choosing chinos, it’s important to pay attention to the colour that they come in as well. Anything too light might wash you out. Sometimes it would be safer to opt for a slightly darker tone or a beige that has a warmer undertone to it.
Pants, $96.90, Topshop
The oldest trick in the book to making your waist look slimmer is to get a pair of pants that sit higher on your waist. This pair gives you that option of not only toggling how high it goes, but how tightly you want to wear it. Plus, it exudes a sporty feel, which is super trendy as well.
Pants, $76.90, Topshop
This pair of pants is a combo of various tips so far, and this is why we love it. High waist? Check. Pleated around the tummy area? Done. Wider waistband? You got it! When it comes to styling this, keep it colourful with a cobalt jumper or a brightly-coloured cardigan.
Madewell pants, $140, NET-A-PORTER
If all that beige has gotten you down, then go for something a little more utilitarian like a military green! For that added touch of cool, throw on an oversized shirt and grab a chain-handle bag before you head out.
